The seventh annual “Scholars’ Day: A Celebration of Student Creativity and Scholarship” will be held on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 from 3:00-5:45 P.M. in Friends Hall, with a dinner for participants, their guests and faculty mentors to follow in the Alumni Lounge from 6:00-7:30 P.M. Sponsored by the Office of the Provost, this event will showcase some of the finest works of faculty mentored students’ creativity, and scholarly activities undertaken in 2018–2019. Scholars’ Day is held near the end of the spring semester and is meant to augment, not supplant, other existing events which recognize student creativity and scholarship. Students participating in other events may submit their presentations to be considered for possible inclusion in Scholars’ Day. The 2019 Scholars’ Day will highlight the creativity and scholarly activities of up to 45 Ramapo students.

Due to space constraints, the selection of posters may be competitive. Students may submit their applications online using the button below. Due date: Wednesday, March 12, 2019. The application requires an abstract (summary of the project with a maximum of 300 words) and approval of a faculty sponsor. Applications will be forwarded to respective convening groups, who will select the top applications for the presentation of a poster. The Scholars’ Day Committee will inform students of their selection to make a poster presentation by Monday, March 25..
Scholars’ Day will also include an oral presentation session that will showcase one student from each school who will give a ten minute talk on her/his project that is appropriate for a general audience. In consultation with the conveners, the Dean of each school will make this selection from among the posters chosen to represent that school. The presentation will be in addition to the poster presentation made by the student selected. The Scholars’ Day Committee will inform students of their selection to make an oral presentation by Monday, April 1. A prize will be awarded to students who are selected to give a talk.
